The perfection of the body, as great a perfection as we can bring about by the means at our disposal, must be the ultimate aim of physical culture. Perfection is the true aim of all culture, the spiritual and psychic, the mental, the vital, and it must be the aim of our physical culture also. If our seeking is for a total perfection of the being, the physical part of it cannot be left aside; for the body is the material basis, the body is the instrument which we have to use.

THE HISTORY OF SPORTS IN AUROVILLE

The history of sports in Auroville is rich and diverse, reflecting the community's commitment to physical well-being, personal growth, and the pursuit of excellence. Since its inception in 1968, Auroville has embraced sports as an integral part of its ethos, recognizing the transformative power of sports in fostering unity, discipline, and a sense of community.

In the early years of Auroville, various sports activities emerged organically as residents and newcomers brought their love for sports from their respective backgrounds and cultures. These activities were initially informal, with individuals gathering to play football, volleyball, basketball, cricket, and other popular sports.

Today, sports continue to thrive in Auroville, with a wide range of activities, tournaments, and training programs taking place throughout the year. The community's commitment to sportsmanship, unity, and personal growth remains steadfast, fostering a vibrant and inclusive sports culture that brings together individuals from diverse backgrounds.
